i found a $1 off 4 bottles of VO5 coupon on LHCF today, so i went to CVS and picked up 2 bottles of VO5 strawberries and creme and 2 bottles of VO5 vanilla mint tea conditioner. i remember when i thought VO5 was the end-all-be-all for cowashing; it sure did get me through the summer of 2008 though. ahh, memories.
i will be 2 years post relaxer, 1 year post BC in june. i think until then i will keep it as simple as possible: weekly wash and DC, not to mention cowashing til i drop.
